Confession time: My house (and I ) are a complete shambles. Laundry nor bedding have been washed in two weeks with a couple small hand washing forays. Never mind the fact that much of my daily checklist has fallen by the wayside (I'll be accountable on Monday) and that my fun things are not as far along as I would like.
Unfortunately I don't get to blame all of this on freeze-mageddon. For me it was five days out of the month (thankfully, thankfully). Cabin fever had set in both because of the short Texas winter and our friend the pandemic, I have been experiencing full out exhaustion (as in sit in bed daily till ten am) and the nerves on the outside of my knees are so sensitive many days it has hurt to have anything touch them or get tighter as when I lean over or walk. And daughter has been really busy so we haven't dragged my clothes to her house and have been to lazy and cold to go to the laundry room in our community center.
Yes, it's been that kind of a month, more or less.
The good news is that some of those issues have resolved, or will resolve soon. And I should feel better and get more done. Soon.
First, my thyroid lab results were waaayyyyy down and the prescription written that I picked up yesterday was almost double the previous. Hopefully a week on that will make an improvement. Second, like a whole bunch of fellow bloggers and readers, I am counting down after shot number two to my ten days. It's not like I'm gonna throw a party or something, but I can see myself at an outdoor patio table with my also vaccinated daughter, going into the fabric store, and walking in crowded areas (while masked). Maybe even into my local used book store! Not sure about the pool yet.
Third, I actually found out WHERE the laundry room is, got the stuff I need and have a rolling cart so I can be a grown up and do my own clothes (I promised myself that if I did the fluff and fold that usually costs fifty bucks for everything I would put that same amount into savings and that has kept me back). I am still looking at washers and dryers and expect to have them by the end of March. Still not sure between front and top type.
Those things plus adding more carbs (yep) and having a full real breakfast should help. As should the fact that I pulled out all my cotton, warm weather maxi dresses and knit skirts and am wearing sweaters over them except for exercise and out of the house stuff (for now, later I'll wear the dresses and skirts everywhere. I am not a pants person). Oh, and I also made a "station" next to my rocking recliner that all all the knitting and my sketch book and markers so all I have to do is bend over and I'll be ready to craft or design when energy lessens and I feel I might crash.
For the record, at three days my arm both itches and hurts-to the touch . As in when I and scratch it's a small "ouch". I had minor chills much less than hot flash type on and off for two days (nothing I could not have forced myself to work through if I were still in my office) and a headache here and there and some extremely minor muscle aches. Again, nothing that would stop someone from doing things if they had to, but since I don't have to, I did not. And I obviously cannot evaluate the tiredness aspect since right now I am always tired!
Oh and boy do I have have an apartment story coming up, and not, it's not about the people upstairs. Not exactly anyway!
